I have read that Wx is faster than Tk

I'm not sure where you heard that, or what sort of application they were talking about.

If you want a filehandle watcher in Gtk2, you can do that, Gtk2 is pretty good in my book, although I never had trouble with Tk's speed, unless the number of widgets were very large.

You can run mixed event loops by making one loop a master, and the other a slave. The slave loop gets pumped every so many milliseconds by a timer in the master loop. See Wx with Tk and here below is a Gtk2-Tk hybrid script. It may be useful.

#!/usr/bin/perl -w use strict; use Gtk2; use Tk; #setup Tk loop my $mw = MainWindow->new(-title=>'Tk Window'); my $count_tk = 0; my $labtk = $mw->Label(-textvariable =>\$count_tk)->pack; #setup Gtk2 loop Gtk2->init; my $count_gtk = 0; my $window = Gtk2::Window->new('toplevel'); $window->set_title('Gtk2 Window'); my $glabel = Gtk2::Label->new("This is a Gtk2 Label $count_gtk"); $window->add($glabel); $window->show_all; # make Tk loop the master, but you could make Gtk2 master if desired # the lower the repeat rate, i.e. 1 ms, # will give more cpu time to the gtk2 loop # this is sometimes called manually pumping the event loop my $tktimer = $mw->repeat(10, sub{ $count_gtk++; $glabel->set_text("This is a Gtk2 Label $count_gtk"); Gtk2->main_iteration while Gtk2->events_pending; $count_tk++; }); $mw->Button(-text=>' Tk control Quit ', -command => sub{exit} )->pack(); MainLoop; ########################################
